Love letter to the Bay Area

I always love seeing a new Big Event episode in my podcast queue! Peter’s knowledge and love of SF and the broader Bay Area is infectious, and the guests are always great. Even when the topic is one that I think I’m already an expert on, I learn something new and interesting. It’s like spending time with an old friend!
